Watford v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th January 2018

Watford
Watford v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 13th January 3.00pm Southampton go into the weekend in a spot of bother as they are just one place above the drop zone now. They are well out of winning touch at the moment and are really struggling to find the goals to pull them to a bit of safety. But then Watford’s form has dived so much that they are now in real danger of getting sucked into the combative bottom half of the table. There are a big three points on offer here.

Watford News and Form

Watford really needs to find a reset button to hit. After such a promising start to the season they are now W1 D1 L7 in their last nine top-flight games and the disappointments keep stacking up for them, especially at the back.  They haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games now. Their home record for the season is W3 D3 L5 for the season and they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six at Vicarage Road. Their defence has been torn up recently though with them having shipped eleven goals in their last four home games and therefore both teams to score at William Hill returns a price of 7/10* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.39pm). Going forward, the Hornets have averaged 1.3 goals per game, which is nothing special, and certainly isn’t helping cover up their defence which has conceded at a rate of 2.09 per home game. 64% of their home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals though and even though the struggling Saints are the visitors, this one is 19/20 to go over the goal line with William Hill* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.47pm). The top scorer for Watford at Vicarage Road is Abdoulaye Doucoure with three goals.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are sweating a bit at the moment as they are just out of the relegation zone on goal difference only over Stoke. It is a nine-match streak in the Premier League for them now without a win. They are just not producing enough and out on the road they have been stuck on just the one win in part of a W1 D4 L5 record on their travels this term and have lost two of their last three out on the road, failing to score in two of their last three road games too. Add that up and there is probably going to be some decent appeal on backing Watford to win to nil at William Hill for the fixture. Southampton have collected only the seven away goals in the Premier League this season and they failed to score in 40% of their away fixtures. They have been leaky at the back with an average of 1.5 goals conceded per game away from St Marys. 71% of Southampton's away goals this season have cropped up in the second half of matches and that means the half-time draw may not be a bad option. Just twice this season have Southampton scored the opening goal in an away game. Another misfire this weekend and they could find themselves in the relegation zone.

Watford v Southampton Head to Head

There have been just the five previous Premier League meetings between these two sides and from that, it is Southampton who holds a narrow lead with a W2 D2 L1 record. They did win this corresponding fixture last season, a 4-3 thriller but they have already lost at home to the Hornets this term. Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings and Watford are actually winless in their last four on home soil against the Saints.

Watford v Southampton Betting Odds*

Watford 7/5, Southampton 19/10, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds were taken January 9th, 2018 at 11.54pm)

Watford v Southampton Predictions

Watford to win: There may not be much to choose between these at the end of the day but on home soil, the Hornets will be expected to find a way to win this. They badly need a win to shake off the funk that they have been in, and the Saints may not offer up quite enough resistance.

Manchester City v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd January 2018

Manchester City
Manchester City v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League 2nd January 8.00pm The Citizens will be expected to start the new year at home in the same fashion as they finished 2017 at the Etihad, with a win. They get a run out against Watford on Tuesday in a game which sees them go as strong odds-on favourites. Watford started the season so strongly out on the road, but they are now carrying some pretty poor away form into this trip to the Etihad which may well spell big trouble for them.

Manchester City News and Form

Well, the winning streak of City has come to an end as they were held 0-0 at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace in midweek. Their unbeaten streak nearly ended as well, but Ederson saved a last minute penalty for the Citizens to preserve that. Back at the Etihad, City have scored at least two goals in each of their last nine games (W9) as well in that sequence and they have fired off exactly four goals in each of their last two home victories, which were against Spurs and Bournemouth. In the William Hill correct score market a Manchester City 4-0 option is a ridiculously short price of 17/2. Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero have both scored three goals in each in City’s last two home games they are 7/2 and 9/4 respectively in the first goalscorer market for the game. City have lost Gabriel Jesus to injury, David Silva is still missing and Kevin de Bruyne took a bad knock on the weekend. There has been a fantastic average of 3.6 goals per game from City at home and they have been leading at half time in seven of their ten home fixtures. A Man City/Man City half time/full time bet could be a good proposition and they have collected four clean sheets at the Etihad this term.

Watford News and Form

Watford were stunned in a late come back from bottom side Swansea in midweek, and they are having real problems at the back in seeing out games. They go to the Etihad on the back of a three match losing streak away from Vicarage Road in the top flight now. Watford did have a strong start away from home this season, scoring exactly two goals in each of their opening seven way games this season but have subsequently netted just one in their last three in total. Watford are W4 D1 L5 on their travels this season in the top flight and they have averaged 1.6 goals per game and it may be worth looking at both teams to score for a price of 21/10 at William Hill. Watford’s defence is really vulnerable at the moment and has claimed one clean sheet in their last eight away and after getting stuffed 6-0 at Vicarage Road against City earlier in the season, it could be a rough afternoon for the visitors. 71% of the goals that Watford have conceded in away games this season have been in the second half of matches. Richarlison is their top scorer away from home with four goals and he is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Manchester City v Watford Head to Head

It was a romp for Manchester City when they went to Vicarage Road back in September, as the Citizens took a massive 6-0 win. That is eleven unanswered goals they have scored in their last two league games against Watford now. They have strung together a five match winning streak in the Premier League against the Hornets and four of those victories were to nil. City have netted at least two goals in each of their last seven against them in all competitions.

Manchester City v Watford Betting Odds

Man City 1/10, Draw 8/1, Watford 22/1

Manchester City v Watford Predictions

Man City to win: It is unlikely that the defence of Watford is going to hold out against Man City. The Hornets are a positive side and are probably going to leave gaps to be exposed and the Citizens can get yet another win on the board. It’s worth a flutter on City to win to nil as goals for Watford on the road have dried up a bit.

Watford v Swansea Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th December 2017

Watford
Watford v Swansea Betting Tips - Premier League 30th December 3.00pm Watford got themselves a much needed win on Boxing Day as they fought out a home win over Leicester. That snapped a four match losing streak that they were on, so it was a welcome boost for them. Swansea were hammered at Anfield by Liverpool and they look a bit down and out at the moment. Nothing is happening for them at all right now and once again they may find themselves short of the goals needed to contend.

Watford News and Form

There was a much needed win for Watford on Boxing Day as they collected a 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road over Leicester. The Hornets fought back from a goal down in the game as well. It was an important game for Watford too as it snapped a four match losing streak and a six match winless streak of form that they were on. It leaves Watford with a W3 D3 L4 home record in the Premier League this season and the triumph over the Foxes on Tuesday also snapped a three match winless streak of home form that the Hornets were on. There are problems at the back for them as they have not managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last seven games now. But they are not exactly facing a prolific Swansea side in this one and Watford to win to nil with Ladbrokes could be a good option to consider for the match up. Watford have scored 13 goals in their ten games at Vicarage Road during the campaign but they have conceded at over two goals per game. They have actually only opened the scoring three times at home this season, but they do have some great quality going forward though with Abdoulaye Doucoure a decent 7/2 anytime goalscorer option.

Swansea News and Form

Another loss for Swansea cropped up on Tuesday as they lost 5-0 at Anfield against Liverpool. That was never going to be an easy game for them. But it means that they are now on a seven match losing streak away from home in the top flight and they have still only managed the five away goals all season. Because of that, under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is a solid 7/10 option. Their lack of goals is a concern but now heaping pressure on is that their defence has started to crack even more and they have shipped twelve goals in their last four league matches now, and relegation looks a certainty at this point. Swansea have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per away games this season and they have failed to score in 60% of their road fixtures. Out on their travels, they have netted three clean sheets, but they haven’t been able to do much going forward. They are eight games without an away win now and that will probably be extended in this one. On top of all this, January's fixture list isn’t going to be kind to them and at Ladbrokes Swansea are 1/5 odds on favourites to suffer relegation this term to the Championship.

Watford v Swansea Head to Head

There was a 2-1 win for Watford down in South Wales back in September and that is back to back league wins for them over Swansea. Watford are unbeaten in their last three league games now against the Swans and from the five previous Premier League meetings, Watford are W3 D1 L1 against Swansea.

Watford v Swansea Betting Odds

Watford 8/11, Draw 11/4, Swansea 7/2

Watford v Swansea Predictions

Watford to win: The Hornets can bag themselves a win in this one and get a little bit of momentum going behind them. Swansea are just not in a good place at the moment and once again will likely get picked off. Back the home side to win to nil.

Watford v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 26th December 2017

Watford
Watford v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 26th December 3.00pm Watford have produced some mixed form at Vicarage Road this season and they have just struggled to land any kind of winning consistency. So this may well be a pretty open and competitive game because Leicester turn up with some great away from behind them in the top flight. This should be an entertaining Boxing Day affair.

Watford News and Form

Watford have failed to deliver consistency on home form and they have just found the going a little tough lately.  They have picked up one point only from their last three at Vicarage Road in the top flight and that was from a draw against ten-man Spurs. Watford are just W2 D3 L4 at Vicarage Road this season and they have scored eleven goals in their nine home fixture. At the back, they have been really slack and they are connecting at an average rate of over a couple of goals per game which leaves them vulnerable. Over 2.5 goals at 888Sport has to be worth a look in this one though. 56% of Watford’s home games have gone over the goal line. The Hornets have conceded at least one goal in 78% of their home matches this season and have opened the scoring in just three home games. 60% of the goals they have shipped at home have been in the first half of matches.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are carrying away form at the moment and will fancy their chances in this one. The Foxes have won their last two away games back to back, beating Newcastle and Southampton. Overall the Foxes are unbeaten in seven games on the road now so they should well be in this one. Both teams to score is going to be good value here as Leicester do have only the one away clean sheet this season and both teams have scored in 78% of their away games. They are carrying a good anytime goalscorer option in Shinji Okazaki who is their top scorer away from home this season while Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are the only other two to have managed more than one away goal for them this season. Leicester have gone W3 D4 L2 on their travels in the top flight so far this season and their form suggests that they can at least avoid defeat in this one on Boxing Day.

Watford v Leicester Head to Head

There was a home win for each of these in the top flight last season, but Leicester are up in the recent head to head form. Of the last six league meetings, four of which have been in the Premier League, the Foxes are W4 D1 L1 up against the Hornets.

Watford v Leicester Betting Odds

Watford 13/10, Leicester 2/1, Draw 12/5

Watford v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes are value to go and get a win. They are carrying good away form and have won two of their last three league visits to Vicarage Road as well. With the Hornets a bit unreliable then the away victory has appeal.

Brighton v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd December 2017

Brighton
Brighton v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League 23rd December 3.00pm This is a clash between two sides who are in need of a win. Brighton are starting to struggle badly at the moment with wins evading them. But they have to sense that there is a good chance of points in this one with Watford being so badly out of form. The Hornets have slumped to a three match losing streak in the league and are sliding back down towards the bottom half of the table. They need to quickly stop the rot.

Brighton News and Form

The Seagulls really need to get a win under their belt just to give themselves a little bit of a confidence boost as well as stability. They are just around the mid table mark but need points to stay around there. They have only collected the one point from their last twelve available in the top flight and they are finding goals really hard to come by. They have failed to score in any of their last three league matches and have just one goal in their last six games. They have been a pretty tough side to knock down at the Amex though this season where they have produced a W2 D5 L2 record and the only two sides to have gone there and won this season have been Liverpool and Man City. Brighton have drawn five of their last six at home (L1) so that suggests they could at least stick in there and avoid defeat. They are facing a Watford side who are out of form and a Brighton draw no bet at William Hill is an 8/11 price just in case they can’t find that winner. There’s a reasonable chance that the game will end up under 2.5 goals and that’s a quote of 13/20. Only 33% of games at the Amex have made it above the goal line. 78% of the goals that the Seagulls have managed at home have come in the second half of matches so a half time draw is worth a poke. Brighton have averaged a goal per game at home.

Watford News and Form

Watford really need a boost as well because they have managed a poor D1 L4 record in their last five league games. Their defence hasn’t been reliable at all recently and they have conceded twelve goals in their last five games played. So they need to fix that quickly before they slide down the table further. They have lost their last two games out on the road as well and overall now have picked up just a W1 L4 record in their last five road fixtures. Watford have scored in all but one of their away games this season and therefore both teams to score at William Hill isn’t going to be a bad option really. The Hornets have averaged 1.8 goals per game away from Vicarage Road this season, taking three clean sheets along the way. That is 89% of their away games this season in which they have scored, which is good. Each of those clean sheets coincided with an away win for the Hornets. Watford are W4 D1 L4 out on the road in the top flight this season. They do have some attacking quality in them Richarlison is at 9/4 while Andre Gray is at 2/1 and he gets a chance as Troy Deeney is suspended. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is the shortest price available. Three of Watford’s four road defeats have been by a one goal margin and Brighton 1-0 is at 7/1.

Brighton v Watford Head to Head

The earlier meeting this season produced a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road. That left Watford on a six match undefeated streak of form against Brighton with a W3 D3 record in that sequence of matches. The Hornets have also gone unbeaten in their last five trips to Brighton, winning three of those. The trend in recent meetings have been low scoring matches as each of the last five of them have finished under 2.5 goals.

Brighton v Watford Betting Odds

Brighton 6/4, Watford 19/10, Draw 2/1

Brighton v Watford Predictions

Draw: The draw may be decent appeal in this one because neither of these really look that capable of winning at a game that the moment. Brighton are going to have to rely on their defence to keep them in this one but Watford may just miss the boat again because they are struggling for a consistent 90 minutes.

Watford v Huddersfield Predictions & Betting Odds – 16th December 2017

Watford
Watford v Huddersfield Betting Tips - Premier League 16th December 3.00pm Watford are a pretty frustrating side for punters at the moment. They are still playing well but are throwing games away. They blew a lead at Crystal Palace in midweek to end up losing right at the death and badly need to find their feet again. They may get a chance at a reset in this one as they face a Huddersfield side who are struggling for form and who have no away form to speak of recently.

Watford News and Form

Watford suffered a defeat against Crystal Palace in midweek and that is just the one point from the last twelve available to them that they have collected. If you look back a little further at their form then they have suffered six defeats in their last nine games (W2D1) so they're struggling to piece things together consistently at the moment. Overall they have only collected the two home victories this season in the Premier League where they have a W2 D3 L3 record and have won just one of their last four there, a 2-0 victory over West Ham. In general though home and away Watford have been scoring pretty well this season and there is a tempting 6/1 price on a Watford 1-0 in the Paddy Power correct score market. The Hornets are 15/2 to win 2-0. They need to find that consistency and a way to see out games. They have taken a clean sheet in 25% of their games at Vicarage Road this season and it’s worth considering them to win to nil in the fixture. The Hornets have conceded at an average of two goals per game at Vicarage Road but shouldn’t be troubled too much by Huddersfield limited attack. This could be an important game in which they can get things going for themselves. Troy Deeney, Andre Gray and Richarlison are the joint 6/4 anytime goalscorer favourites.

Huddersfield News and Form

Huddersfield's difficulties continued in midweek as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat against Chelsea. Not for the first time this season they looked really lightweight up front. Huddersfield have now gone W1 L5 in their last six games and they have scored just the four goals in that sequence as well. They have mustered up only the one away win all season and that was back in their very first away game of the season when they took a good win at Crystal Palace. The Terriers are on a five match losing streak on the road at the moment and they haven't hit the back of the net in any of their last seven. They have the third worst away record in the top flight going this season. The Terriers have conceded an average of 2.25 per games on their travels, but they could be value to hang around for a half time draw with Paddy Power as 78% of their away goals have been conceded in the second half of matches. Huddersfield have shipped at least two goals in each of their last five road games. Both teams not to score has to be a decent banker for the weekend at a price of 4/5. They just are not at the races offensively right now.

Watford v Huddersfield Head to Head

The most recent history between these two in the head to head is from the Championship. In the last six games between them, Watford have pulled out a W4 L2 advantage against Huddersfield. Surprisingly though, five of those six games saw at least four goals in them, the other one going over 2.5 goals as well. Is there a surprise high-scoring fixture coming?

Watford v Huddersfield Betting Odds

Watford 7/10, Draw 11/4, Huddersfield 15/4

Watford v Huddersfield Predictions

Watford to win: This is the chance that Watford surely have to take to get their season up and running again. There will be big questions asked if they fail to beat a side who are on a five match losing streak in the division. Home win and to nil.

Crystal Palace v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th December 2017

Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League 12th December 8.00pm The Eagles have put together a five match unbeaten streak in the Premier League but they dropped back to the bottom of the table after having seen Swansea win on the weekend. Three points in this one on Tuesday night would see the Eagles get out of the bottom three, even if it is temporarily. Watford suffered an away loss at Burnley on the weekend to continue their recent patchy run of form, but they may find the defence of the Eagles a little more forgiving than that of the Clarets.

Crystal Palace News and Form

It was another draw for the Eagles on the weekend. That was their third on the bounce in the top flight as they played out a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth. At least the Eagles have remained unbeaten in their last five games now in the top flight and have suffered just the one loss in their last seven and that defeat was against Spurs. So they are doing much better but can they turn out the wins? They are on a five match unbeaten streak of form at home (W2 D3) and the three draws in that sequence were all 2-2 affairs and both wins were 2-1 victories. In the Ladbrokes correct score market there is a quote of 17/2 on a Palace 2-1 win and 14/1 odds on a 2-2 draw. Crystal Palace would move out of the relegation zone with a win on Tuesday night, even if it is only temporarily. That would at least be a big boost of confidence for them. They are still looking for their first home clean sheet though so both teams to score should be an option at Ladbrokes. All of Palace’s goals this season in the top flight have been at Selhurst Park and Wilfried Zaha is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for them, while Christian Benteke who missed from the penalty spot on the weekend is the 15/8 favourite. Palace have only been leading once at half time at home so far this term.

Watford News and Form

Watford haven’t been all that consistent lately and have only managed a frustrating W2 D1 L5 record in their last eight league matches. So they are on the search for some consistency after suffering a 1-0 defeat at Turf Moor against Burnley on the weekend. There will be concerns about their away form as well which is in decline. They have suffered a defeat in three of their last four away games now (W1) and that defeat at Burnley was the first time this season that Watford have failed to score in an away fixture. They had scored at least two goals in each of their other away games this season. Two of their three away defeats now have been by a one goal margin only and that is because they have done alright in front of goal this term. Troy Deeney and Andre Gray are up there around the 2/1 mark in the anytime goalscorer market and both teams to score at Ladbrokes is worth a serious look in this one. Watford have opened the scoring in five of their eight away games and 60% of their 15 away goals have come in the second half of matches, which may make the half time draw at Ladbrokes a decent option to consider.

Crystal Palace v Watford Head to Head

Crystal Palace earned four points from their two games against Watford last season in the Premier League. The Eagles are only W2 L2 in their last four at home against the Hornets and things are pretty even between these from recent meetings. Of the four Premier League games contested, Palace are W2 D1 L1.

Crystal Palace v Watford Betting Odds

Crystal Palace 6/5, Watford 23/10, Draw 9/4

Crystal Palace v Watford Predictions

Draw: Because of the number of game that palace have been drawing lately, then it is likely that this one will go the same way. Watford may have a little more space to express themselves at Selhurst Park than they did at Burnley on the weekend, but Palace are in a resilient mood and take a point.
/

Burnley v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th December 2017

Burnley
Burnley v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League 9th December 3.00pm The Clarets have lost two of their last three games now so need to just steady the ship a little bit. They will be happy to get back to the home comforts at Turf Moor where they have played really well this season and haven’t given up much defensively. Watford missed a golden opportunity to collect three points against Spurs last weekend, but couldn’t press home their advantage against their opponents who were down to ten-men. Will they find a way to break through the tough Burnley defence?

Burnley News and Form

Burnley are going well still in the top seven in the Premier League, but there have been two defeats in their last three games played though, but both of those were narrow 1-0 defeats against Leicester and Arsenal. Definitely, they continue to look good though and their 1-0 defeat at home against Arsenal in their last game at Turf Moor was only via a penalty that they conceded in stoppage time. The Clarets are now on a W3 D2 L2 record in their seven home fixtures this season and they will see this as a good chance to snap back to winning form perhaps. It is unlikely that they are going to actually get a lot of goals on the road and under 2.5 goals at Stan James is at odds of 8/13. Burnley have collected four clean sheets in seven home fixtures this season and they are 13/8 to take a clean sheet in this one. Chris Wood is the 7/4 market leader in the anytime goalscorer market and up in the correct score market, a Burnley 1-0 is a 6/1 poke with only the 1-1 shorter at 11/2.

Watford News and Form

Watford are just one place back of Burnley in the league standings and they picked up a point last weekend against Spurs in a 1-1 draw. However, in the second half with Spurs down to ten men, Watford seemed reluctant to push on and take advantage. Watford are W2 D1 L1 then in their last four league games and they're on a five match scoring streak in the top flight. Troy Deeney and Andre Gray are 2/1 Stan James anytime goalscorer options for them. The Hornets have actually produced well on their travels this season with a W4 D1 L2 record and they were on a two match losing streak before winning at Newcastle in their last road games. They have only collected the two clean sheets across their last nine league games played and 71% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season and 60% of their away goals have cropped up in the second half of matches. 70% of the goals they have conceded on the road have all been turned out in the second half of games. They have managed to maintain their record of having scored at least two goals in each of their away games this season and they have opened the scoring in all but two of their away game this term.

Burnley v Watford Head to Head

Both Burnley and Watford took a home win in last season’s Premier League meetings, the victor scoring exactly two goals in their victories. Things in the head to head overall are pretty tight from recent encounters with four draws and one win each in the last six meetings. Five of the last eight games between Burnley and Watford in the league have ended in a draw.

Burnley v Watford Betting Odds

Burnley 11/8, Watford 2/1, Draw 11/5

Burnley v Watford Predictions

Burnley to win: Watford were disappointed in their approach to attacking ten-man Tottenham last weekend, as they still looked a bit conservative. They may well struggle to get the better of the Clarets in this one, who have been in good home form this season. This will likely be a low scoring game and Burnley can nick it.

Watford v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd December 2017

Watford

Watford v Tottenham Betting Tips - Premier League 2nd December 3.00pm

The wheels are coming off Tottenham’s domestic season a bit and after the midweek round of action they have slipped down to seventh in the league having only collected four points from their last four league games now. Can they get themselves going with a win at Watford? The Hornets suffered a bit of a defensive blow out against Manchester United in midweek but that was despite actually playing pretty well in the match. Can they take advantage of Tottenham’s decline in form?

Watford News and Form

Watford lost 4-2 at home against Manchester United in midweek, but it was a strange game. The Hornet's bossed the first half and somehow found themselves 3-0 down in the game. But they mounted a late fightback to get within a goal of the Red Devils before Jesse Lingard netted a great solo effort to kill the game off. The Hornets had won their two previous league games before that, taking down West Ham and Newcastle. But the Hornets were competitive again and showed good positive quality, built their defence has not been all that solid in particular. The Hornets have shipped at least three goals in half of their last six matches. So there’s a bit of work to do at the back. Both teams to score at bet365 should be considered for this at 7/10 because the Hornets have been producing well in front of goal themselves. They have scored at least two goals eight of their last nine league games. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 710. Watford have gone W2 D2 L3 at home this season and in their last four at Vicarage Road have alternated between a loss and a win. Richarlison is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer option, with Abdoulaye Doucoure, who got a great poacher’s goal against United at 5/1.

Tottenham News and Form

What is happening to Spurs? It is just four points from their last five league games now W1 D1 L3 record in their last five league games and each of the three defeats in that sequence have happened out on the road. So that does suggest that we are going to be under pressure in this one, with confidence waning a little bit. Nothing is quite working for them at either end of the pitch at the moment because the Lilywhites have not scored more than one goal in a game in any of their last five outings they missed a hatful of chances, including a couple of open goals in a defeat at Leicester in midweek. Their consolation goal in their 2-1 loss at Leicester in midweek is their only goal in their last three road games in the top flight. Tottenham have also collected just one clean sheet in their last half a dozen fixtures. Harry Kane was back on the scoresheet in that loss and he is a 5/2 First Goalscorer favourite for this fixture. Seven of his ten goals this season in the league have been away from home. In the bet365 correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option but there does look as if there could be plenty of goals in this and a 2-2 draw is a decent 14/1 poke because the Hornets are a bit slack at the back. Tottenham need to really gather themselves, can they get something out of this?

Watford v Tottenham Head to Head

The Hornet's have played host to Tottenham four times before in the Premier League and have failed to win any of them (W2 D2). In last season's league meeting at Vicarage Road, Watford went down 4-1 before losing 4-0 at White Hart Lane. Overall home and away against Spurs in all competitions, Watford are on a seven match losing streak, failing to score in three of those fixtures

Watford v Tottenham Betting Odds

Tottenham 8/11, Draw 11/4, Watford 7/2

Watford v Tottenham Predictions

Draw: There is a nice feeling about the draw being churned out in this one. Watford will want to be a little sharper at the back than they were against United, but the Hornets did show quality and fight in the match nonetheless. Tottenham have had a couple of bad days at the office recently and this isn’t an easy away trip for them given their current form. Settle for the draw.

Watford v Manchester United Betting Tips - Premier League 28th November 8.00pm Watford have won their last two Premier League games now and that should put some good pep in their step.

The Red Devils ground out a narrow home win over Brighton on the weekend and they will know that they have been in a good duel at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

Watford News and Form

Watford were just struggling a bit with a run of three straight Premier League loses before pulling themselves together to record back to back wins over West Ham and Newcastle. They romped to a 3-0 win at St James’ Park against Newcastle on the weekend and they are a positive side who like to play on the front foot. At Vicarage Road in the Premier League so far this season the Hornets are W2 D2 L2 and one of those wins did come over Arsenal. Will Hughes has scored in his last two games and he is a 9/2 anytime goalscorer option with the impressive Richarlison, who scored in Watford’s last home game, at 11/2. Watford have scored seven league goals at home this season while they have netted more than double that on the road. But with that having been said, they have scored exactly two goals in two of their last three on home soil. Defensively they have conceded an average of 1.8 goals per game at home and both teams to score at bet365 looks good value at 4/5. While they are capable of playing some slick football, they look vulnerable at the back still. Watford have opened the scoring in just two of their six games at Vicarage Road this season.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United could only run out 1-0 home winners over Brighton on the weekend, despite having a lot of attacking options on the pitch. But that was about them getting a win on the board, however, the Red Devils have lost their last two games out on the road (at Huddersfield and Chelsea) and are winless in their last three. Manchester United have picked up just a W2 D2 L2 record on their travels this season and they have netted just the two goals in their last four away games. Part of the reason for that is that they were missing Paul Pogba which sent them into their shell. Twelve of United’s 28 league goals this season have happened in the final fifteen minutes of matches. 62% of all their away goals this season have come in the second half of matches and half of their total of eight coming in the final fifteen minutes of games. Romelu Lukaku is the even money anytime goalscorer favourite for the match even though, quite surprisingly, United have conceded the first goal in half of their away games this season. With that having been said though, 83% of the goals that they have conceded in the Premier League this season have been in the second half of matches

Watford v Manchester United Head to Head

Watford posted a 3 -1 home win in this corresponding fixture last season to rock the Red Devils. That, however, was a rare win for them and indeed is their only victory over Manchester United in their last thirteen games against them in all competitions (W1 L12). Five of the last six games between these two have produced at least two goals and four of those six went over the 2.5 goal line.
